Annotation
The shaman, without his ritual costume but with his head covered with headscarf is shamanizing sitting on the ground. In his right hand he holds a wooden staff and an anthropomorphic helper ghost with pendants of beads. The staff and the helper ghost are tied to a tree with belts. Standing in the background are Evenki present at the ritual. Abstract by V.V. Gorbacheva
